In ‘The Original Soundtrack’ talk our filmjournalist Jeroen Struys each week about the most beautiful film music on Klara, together with his concullega Robin Brittle. They do a whole summer long, with each week a different theme. The first episode, this Saturday, between 18 and 20 hours, is about the most beautiful filmkussen, and how the music sounds.
With whom was your first kiss? It is not intended to be in your private matters to dig, it comes here to the first people with whom you have a kiss shared on the white cloth. Forgive any form of exaggerated …
With whom was your first kiss? It is not intended to be in your private matters to dig, it comes here to the first people with whom you have a kiss shared on the white cloth. Forgive any form of exaggerated romance, but there still is a big attraction out of the cinema as a place where the most intimate moments you can share with strangers. All is the unwritten rule that you gained inspiration, not directly on them exercises.
As film was invented, had the need to be invented: to kiss. It was also not much. Inventor Thomas Edison experimented already in short films around the turn of the century. How awkward and dealt saw it there. This Was how our ancestors coasts? A wonder there are ever children of his come. Or is it mainly the camera that still don’t know how a kiss can bring?
The pillow would soon be perfected. The camera can show us what we don’t see it as we kiss: what is there in the other deal. Rather than kussers of Thomas Edison, the image I me that our grandparents and great-grandparents to each other, the mouth snoerden such as Jean Gabin and Michèle Morgan at the fair of ‘Le quais des brûmes’ of Marcel team was.
The kiss is perhaps the ultimate cinematic moment, where often a ninety minutes long, and will be built up. In ‘Boyhood’ Richard Linklater even almost three hours – and then you get eventually that kiss won’t even see it. The suggestion of a kiss is also a kiss. That such a suggestion the head can bring, the cinema soon became a nasty reputation. Who knows what’s out there in the dark can happen? This led, in the years 30 up to a set of rules for the Film: the famous ‘Hays Code’ forbade ” excessive or lustful kissing’. Specifically: for more than three seconds if it’s not bent.
Alfred Hitchcock excluded that sleurverbod useful. In Notorious, he made the mouths of Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman every three seconds some distance to take what zediger to cuddling. So he came in total to a filmkus of 2.5 minutes. Hitchcock used music to tension building, but romance happens to him, preferably in silence. The result is one of the most intimate filmkussen ever.
The most beautiful pillow in black and white? When cushion color got, they lost maybe a touch of magic. But kiss have now also no longer as clumsy as 118 years ago. And it can also be upside down, in spandex. Or if you are Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst, Spider-Man 2.
Cushion can your world on its head. And there may now also kissing like that in the past could not. Such as that between Timothée Chalamet and Armie Hammer in ‘Call me by your name’, a bucolic scene that are just as good 2,500 years old. It is a kiss that confuses and elevates.
Today, his pillow no longer be the subversive agents of sex, such as they long time were. This time is more explicit sex scenes. That can download, or sometimes even downright annoying (‘Fifty shades of Grey’). But if it is done well, does a kiss the heart beat faster. Just like that first time.
